28 April 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Hgtv broke ground in December 1994, few in the industry thought it would amount to more than a quaint idea with niche appeal. Fast-forward two decades, and the once-tiny lifestyle and gardening channel has morphed into a global cultural phenomenon with shows from Ellen DeGeneres and “Dancing With the Stars” pros Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, who debut Tuesday in “Mark and Derek’s Excellent Flip.” The buzzy marquee names along with the cable network’s homegrown crop of hot hosts and simple yet highly addictive formats are sending ratings through the roof. For the week ending April 26, Hgtv was the. »

Mark Ballas' Praise of Willow Shields Is the Sweetest Thing You'll Hear Today

28 April 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Are we watching the same Dancing With the Stars, because why did Willow Shields just get sent home? The Hunger Games star, who at just 14 has been wowing audiences and the DWTS judges along with partner Mark Ballas, was sent home on Monday. "It's a little shocking, yeah," Willow told us after the show. But the actress is leaving with her head held high and some amazing memories. She said her seven weeks on Dancing With the Stars were the "most incredible experience" of her life. But wait, she's just 14. "And I'm 14 and I'm saying I know when I'm older, I'll still look back on this and [think about] how exciting and memorable it was," she said. For their final dance, Mark »

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Delivers Shocking Blow to Fan Favorite

27 April 2015 9:34 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars”)  The odds were not in this “Dancing With the Stars” contestant’s favor on Monday night as 14-year-old “Hunger Games” actress Willow Shields was the latest to get the ax. Season 20’s youngest contestant and dance pro Mark Ballas were ninja warriors for a futuristic jazz routine that failed to connect with the judges, possibly because their faces were covered throughout. After delivering the crushing blow of rejection, host Tom Bergeron immediately transformed into a father figure to hug it out with Shields, »

Dancing With the Stars Week 7 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

27 April 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Dancing With the Stars pulled a fast one on us in a number of ways this Monday night.

First, the dreaded double elimination was postponed by one week, taking quite a bit of suspense out of one of the season’s most eventful shows.

Then, in a results shocker that was, perhaps, not entirely unfair but certainly unexpected, one of Season 20’s frontrunners was sent packing in a flurry of tears and hugs from the other contestants.

But that’s enough suspense. Let’s get right to the highlights of Monday’s “Eras Night” broadcast, which found each couple dancing »

Dancing with the Stars Elimination Shocker! Plus, Watch Bruce Willis Surprise Rumer At Rehearsal

27 April 2015 7:42 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Well that was a surprise. And not a good one. While we were ready to say goodbye to one of the more consistently low-scoring couples like Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson or Chris Soules and Witney Carson, tonight's bottom two were two of the consistently high-scoring couples: Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy vs. Willow Shields & Mark Ballas. Unfortunately, no one volunteered as tribute when it was announced that Willow and Mark were going home, even after tying for second place with a 37 out of 40 and winning their dance off against Riker Lynch and Allison Holker. Even Chris and Witney were totally shocked to find that they were safe. Like us, they probably couldn't see a single reason for sending »

"Hunger Games" star Willow Shields joins AccessHollywood.com as our behind-the-scenes celebrity blogger for Season 20 of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

Here is Willow's latest post…

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas on ‘Dancing’ (ABC)

When I decided to do "Dancing With The Stars," I knew it was a reality show, but I’m used to working on movies where nothing is very real. I’ve even had to learn a dance for a film, but I had to master only parts of it knowing the camera would be on me at certain times. It’s called acting. Although acting helps ...

Say it ain't so! Derek Hough has sustained multiple injuries.

"We can confirm he was injured last night rehearsing for the 'DWTS' 10th Anniversary special," a rep for the show told Access Hollywood on Tuesday.

The pro dancer shared (and quickly deleted) an ominous photo of his legs on Monday night – his right foot in a boot, and his left ankle wrapped and supported by and aircast. His friend and fellow "DWTS" pro Mark Ballas is seen in the background giving a thumbs down sign.

Willow Shields has a confession to make. The Dancing With the Stars contestant known for her role as Prim Everdeen, sister to Jennifer Lawrence's character Katniss in The Hunger Games movies, is coming clean. "I'm an alien," she told us backstage. "What? Sorry, I zoned out for a second there," her partner Mark Ballas said. Um, us too. What did she say? "I just said I'm an alien," she replied. "Oh, you are an alien," Mark said. "I am," Willow concurred. Yeah…what?! Willow, who scored a 34 for her Salsa with Mark and a 39 for her team dance, was referring to her "alien" extra body parts: ribs. "I have »

Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

20 April 2015 7:49 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the producers of Dancing With the Stars were brainstorming the weekly themes for Season 20.

I totally understood the corporate cross-promotion of last week’s Disney theme, and the emotionally charged Most Memorable Year motif of the week before that. But I’m struggling to figure out the exact components that made up this week’s Spring Break theme, other than the obvious climb in temperature that we’ve seen since Punxsutawney Phil poked his head out in February and reminded us he’s useless.

Even though a handful of Monday’s routines revolved around beachy themes, »

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas during ‘Dancing with the Stars’ rehearsals (ABC)

Stories have always been important to me. When I was young, unable to read yet on my own, my parents would read to me at various times during the day, and especially every night before bed.

I will never forget "Ferdinand the Bull," "Where the Wild Things Are," and Laura Ingalls Wilder's adventures on the prairie.

Have you ever wanted to see The Bachelor‘s Chris Soules dressed in a toga? How about Rumer Willis in purple face paint? Or Mark Ballas with the face of a bunny rabbit?

Well, even if none of those experiences were on your TV bucket list (and if they were, I have a lot of questions), Dancing With the Stars delivered them on Monday, as the remaining contestants took the stage for Disney Night.

And even though a fairytale ending was in store for Season 20’s strongest couples, one unlucky pair did not ride — er, sashay — into the sunset.

Then Suzanne Somers & Tony Dovolani started off the performances with a Lady and the Tramp Jazz routine that landed them a mediocre 28 out of 40 score from the judges.
